An interesting article appeared in the Asbury Park Press looking at the issue of requiring a salt water fishing license in NJ. It's written by Ed Cuneo, president of the New Jersey State Federation of Sportmen's Clubs. This is a fairly controversial topic with strong opinions on both sides. It's not quite as black-and-white as it seems at first, and it's worth getting informed on the more subtle issues involved, some of which are raised in the article.
